For the tech to give you that response was indeed to the point, but of little use to most people.

There is a nozzle cleaning utility in the Lexmark Solutions Center. Use that to clean the nozzles of your ink cartridges. The Lexmark Solutions Center is installed on your computer. You can find it in the Windows Start Menu under "All Programs" in a folder marked "Lexmark".

If your printer has been sitting without use for more than a few weeks, the nozzles may be too clogged with dry ink to clean by conventional means. The only thing left to do is to replace the ink cartridges.

My Lexmark X1270 printer at one time worked, everything was good, then when I put a new color to black will not print any other color or a black color, print only a little pale, almost do not see anything...


Lexmark products work best with genuine supplies. Lexmark does not recommend the use of refilled, remanufactured, or clone cartridges. You might not get the print quality you expect from ink that is specially formulated by Lexmark.
You can try to clean your cartridge nozzles using the Lexmark software on your computer. From your computer, go to Start menu > Programs > Lexmark X1200 Series folder > select Lexmark Solution Center. From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them.
If that does not help, maybe it would be best to replace your supplies with genuine cartridges.
I hope this helps.

When printing on x3350 with a new cartridge... get lines that are double and some with thick black ink on some letters.


Try to reseat the cartridges into the printer. If problem continues, then maybe the cartridge nozzles need cleaning. Follow the simple steps below on how to clean the cartridge nozzles on the Lexmark X3350:
  1. Go to Start, Programs (Windows XP: All Programs) > Lexmark 3300 Series > Lexmark Solution Center.
  2. Click the Maintenance tab.
  3. Click Clean to fix horizontal streaks.
  4. Click Print. A cleaning page prints, forcing ink through the clogged nozzles to clean them.
  5. Print the document again to verify that the print quality has improved.

Lexmark z2300m....black printing suddenly started streaking. Prints first 6 lines then streaks on rest of page. Nozzle cleaning and manual cleaning didn't help.


Your best bet is to buy new ink cartridges.

Ensure that the entire assembly is cleaned thoroughly though, just to be sure. Nozzle cleaning is rarely useful.

Hi ive just bought a lexmark printer its model no is z2300 im having problems locating ink cartridges or compatible ones please can you help im almost out of ink!


You are going to have to refill the cartidges you have, They no longer manufacture them. Here is a link I found for you for the best deal on the cheap tool and Ink that you will need.

http://www.ink-refills-ink.com/printer/Lexmark+Z-2300+Ink/16264/?src=gpsearch&gpprod=Lexmark+Z-2300&gptype=bulk

Also, Before you refill your cartidges I suggest you clean the print nozzles with automotive drygas on a clean piece of lint free cloth. Soak the cloth with the alcohol and hold it on the nozzles for at least 1 minute. After you fill the cartridges run the clean printhead function as soon as you put them back in.
Never rub the nozzles, this will kill them. Follow these instructions and they will last almost indefinately.
If you need further assistance feel free to contact me and I will call you For any of your computer tech needs for free. I'm retired at 42 and I do this as one of my favorite hobbies.
Ps. Don't forget to vote Fixya for me when you get this printer all filled up. Another thing, the more ink you buy the better the deal you get. Way cheaper than buying new cartridges.

Hope this helps you,
George
